I̶ ̶d̶o̶n̶'̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶n̶k̶
I don't think there is
between the current
hard times and
the coming good times
i always have
the urge to run.
but what is it like
to be a tree?
to be confident enough
to root yourself
and grow with
i'm still running,
but i wish i knew.
He pushed his shopping cart towards the empty tunnel
it was full of rattling empties and a brave cocker spaniel
a penniless vagabond hiding from the rainy day pummel
wet, cold, and hungry hunching closer to Jack Daniel
he shared with his dog, a little square of flannel
Along came a mosquito with a straw-like mouth
and crawled into the bottle with an empty spout
The hobo drunk on ***** in a stupor from the sauce
shut the insect in then hollered " so now whos boss !"
the dog did bark but heh, he wasn't in the land of Oz
so on his knees the hobo went and soon began to pray
"I didn't have to ****** him so why did I, oh why oh why "
and then the echo came from the empty tunnel's way
"Don't cry my child after all it was just a fly !"
confessed and reassured the hobo slept until the light of day.
They say pain
so I wondered why
I hadn't been writing
then I remembered
pain is not what I'm feeling
it's what I'm yearning
in all this feeling
I dreamt of you last night
You were laughing in the light
I was laughing with you too
We had nothing else to do
We never looked ahead or behind us
I’d forgotten how life could be
Sparkling easy and free
Now I don’t do very much
Routine chains me, keeps me in touch
With reality such as it is
I do miss you and the fizz
You were my bottle of champagne
In my dreams you will remain
I dreamt of you
Yes I dreamt of you.......
so bright the light is in the sky
it leaves those prints in empty eyes
it gives a hope to help in life
while all the roads are tough and dark.
